Henri Giraud Code Noir Rosé

Cuvee: Blanc de Noirs, Rosé
Vintage: Multi-Vintage
With its assured character Code Noir Rosé celebrates Pinot Noir in a straightforward manner. It is a distillation of its origins and the champagne-making method. It is fully autonomous in its sense of harmony and purity.

The Blend
90% Grands Pinot Noirs raised in oak from the Forest of Argonne - Champagne’s historic forest. 10% red wine from Aÿ.

Tasting Notes
This magnificent cuvee is crowned with fine white foam. A pink colour with coppery highlights, deep and delicious.

Red and black fruits against a slightly “smoky” background. Preserved cherries and raspberries set the tone, and then there is an aromatic explosion: pepper and cloves, touches of plum and an intense floral bouquet underlined by wine and a slight touch of wood.

Flexible and fresh, the flavour opens up to a wine of textures, tender on the palate, this rich, balanced and harmonious cuvee is a fine example of purity. The long, chalky finish suggests substance and the fine flavour of Pinot Noir.

Food Pairing
It should be served with tender, powerful and pure dishes to maintain all of its magic. A fillet of beef lightly cooked and without reducing to sauce could do it justice. Recommended Serving Temperature: from 8°C.
